About Alex Newell:
Alex Eugene Newell is an American actor and singer. He is best known for his recurring (later starring) role as transgender student Wade "Unique" Adams on Fox's musical comedy-drama Glee.
Other than my sexuality, I am vulnerable regarding my physical appearance, as I am not what people considered ideal by most standards. For the entertainment business, I am not the body type of what is typically cast for television or movies.Alex Newell
I grew up about 30 minutes north of Boston in a town that was a virtual melting pot - I was exposed to all different backgrounds, cultures, and religions, fueling my personal interests in global issues.Alex Newell
On 'Glee,' we often tackle the tough topics that young people face - in fact, my recurring character, Wade 'Unique' Adams, is a transgender teenager who finds herself navigating a lot of the same problems many young people face around the globe.Alex Newell
